Stunning 1971/72 Steel and White Gold (Fluted Bezel) Rolex Oyster Datejust Gents Vintage WatchStunning 1971/72 Steel and White Gold (Fluted Bezel) Rolex Oyster Datejust Gents Vintage Watch
This is a stunningly original example of the highly desirable Rolex Oyster Datejust from very late 1971/early 1972. The solid steel & white gold case is in excellent condition with only some minor signs of wear. The original Rolex signed steel pearlescent dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is just magnificent. The applied steel hour batons and steel hands flow into the dial and are perfectly framed by the solid white gold fluted bezel. The very high grade Rolex signed ‘chronometer’ standard automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this stunning piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch crocodile skin strap with steel buckle.
My asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a 12 month written guarantee on the movement.
The solid steel & white gold case is in excellent condition with only some minor signs of wear. The case measures 36mm across, excluding the Rolex signed crown and 42mm long including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Switzerland’, ‘Patented Stainless Steel’ and the case number is ‘1601’. The serial number is 2.62 million which dates it to late 1971/early 1972.
The original Rolex signed steel pearlescent dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is just magnificent. The applied steel hour batons and steel hands flow into the dial and are perfectly framed by the solid white gold fluted bezel. The dial is signed ‘Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust’, ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’ and ‘T Swiss T’.
The very high grade Rolex signed ‘chronometer’ standard automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. The movement is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Swiss’, ‘Twenty Six 26 Jewels’, ‘Adjusted 5 Positions and Temp’ and the calibre is ‘1570’. The movement number is D751394.
To complete this stunning piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch crocodile skin strap with steel buckle.
